Solution - Follow up 1  

White almost fills the black eye with a killing shape, the farmer's hat.

[Diagram]
Solution - Follow up 2  

If Black throws in at B2, White still almost fills the black eye with a killing shape, this time the crossed five.

[Diagram]
Failure  

W1 might look like a tesuji at the first glance, but after B2 Black is alive.

Failure - Follow up 1  

This looks similar to the success diagrams, but because of the liberty at a Black's eye isn't almost filled anymore. To almost fill White would need to play twice, but thus can't achieve a killing shape anymore. The result is seki.

[Diagram]
Failure - Follow up 2  

If White tries to make a ko with W3, this fails as well as Black has enough liberties to crush the ko with B6.

[Diagram]
Another failure  

W1 fails, after Black answer with B2 the best White can achieve is seki with W3.
